Krystol Waterstop Grout™

Product Code: K-322

Description Krystol Waterstop Grout

Krystol Waterstop Grout is a crystalline grout used to create an internal or external waterstop at construction joints, pipe penetrations, tie-holes and control joints.

Krystol Waterstop Grout contains fiber reinforcements that reduce shrinkage and limit cracking. It is typically used in conjunction with Krystol Waterstop Treatment™ as part of the Krystol Waterstop System.

Krystol Waterstop Grout contains Krystol technology. When applied to concrete, Krystol chemically reacts with water and un-hydrated cement particles to form insoluble needle-shaped crystals that fill capillary pores and micro-cracks in the concrete and block the pathways for water and waterborne contaminants. Any moisture introduced over the lifespan of the concrete will initiate crystallization, ensuring permanent waterproofing protection.

Features & Benefits

Recommended Uses

Use with Krystol Waterstop Treatment as part of the Krystol Waterstop System as either an internal or external waterstop at all static concrete-to-concrete joints, and as an external waterstop at all pipe penetrations, tie holes and control joints where water penetration is a concern.

Application

Refer to Application Instruction: 4.11, 4.12, 4.14, 4.16, 4.17, or 4.21 (as applicable) before using this product.
Consult a Kryton Representative for help with selecting the appropriate joint detail.
Mix Krystol Waterstop Grout as follows: Slowly add powder to water while mixing (approximately 4.5 parts powder to 1 part clean water by volume). Mix thoroughly once all powder is added to obtain a non-sag putty consistency.
Internal Method: Apply the mixed grout to the center of the construction joint using Kryton’s triangle shaping trowel. Form a continuous and seamless triangular shaped strip that measures 50 mm (2 in.) wide by at least 30 mm (1.25 in.) high.
External Method: Tightly pack mixed grout to pre formed, clean concrete keyway or tie hole while in a Saturated, Surface Dry (SSD) condition.
Protect the grout application from damage by rain, rapid drying or freezing for at least 24 hours.
